ABOUT ME

I'm Alithia (Ally) Monroe, a Physician Assistant and practice Dermatology in a Family Medicine practice in Back Bay Boston since 2009. I'm from a Mental Health Practitioner family, my beloved Grandfather was a Child Psychiatrist and my Mother, an Angola Minister and this instilled a knowing and respect for diverse holistic, religious, and medical healing methods. Administering facial botox® within a Family Medicine practice, I am able to follow patient's continuation of full care, and I observe people look better, of course, but also have witnessed some patients gain function after botox treatments. They "feel better", less tired and more motivated which lead me to search for what turned out to be fairly robust research showing that when the neuromodulator (brand name Botox®) is injected into "the frown muscle" of subjects with Major Depression Disorder, they report lower depression scale scores. Neuroimaging studies show parallel brain shifts with attenuated signaling to negative emotional stimuli in the botox® group compared to placebo. Double blind, randomized studies show the positive effects to be statistically significant and usually occur 2-3 weeks after treatment. I am mission driven to help people along their healing path by improving facial expressions with botox®, thereby quieting the frown muscle facilitating more positive feedback and a better mood.
